On the Committee Stairs there are various busts of Parliamentarians.

William Pitt, the Younger

There have been men both abler and greater than he, though it is not easy to cite them; but in all history there is no more patriotic spirit, none more intrepid, and none more pure.
Earl of Rosebery

George Canning

Certainly a very great statesman, he had the vulgarity to use without mercy his splendid aptitude for ridicule. The lash of his tongue, as his friend Sir Walter Scott put it, "fetched away both skin and flesh and would have penetrated the hide of a rhinoceros".
- T. Charles Edwards.

Spencer Perceval

It is a great misfortune to Mr. Perceval to write in a style that would disgrace a washerwoman.
- George IV.

Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount of Palmerston

Die, my dear Doctor! That's the last thing I shall do.
Palmerston's last words, 1865.

Sir Robert Peel

The Right Honourable gentleman is reminiscent of a poker. The only difference is that a poker gives off occasional signs of warmth.
Benjamin Disraeli.
